Nawazuddin Siddiqui has had his fee increased for the second season of digital show ‘Sacred Games’.

The actor, who was given much praise for his role in the first series, will reprise his role for the second, according to Deccan Chronicle.

A source told the publication, “Sacred Games is Nawaz’s most successful work to date. When the producers decided to make a second season, Nawaz made it clear that he deserved a lot more money for it — nearly double of what he was paid for Season 1. However, his co-star Saif is getting the same amount that he got then.”

Siddiqui also spoke about his remuneration, “Big producers pay me what I ask for. And I ask for what I deserve. When I do a Sacred Games, I am empowered to do a Manto for free.”
